Some eight year old kid named Dom in Cleveland caught a fowl ball with his hat like a boss while taking in an Indians game, and then proceeded to trash talk the opposing first baseman, Detroit's Miguel Cabrera, to the point that Cabrera was won over. 

Cabrera found Dom so amusing he brought him a bat and some other gifts after the game, which Detroit won convincingly. 

You never want to encourage a kid to grow up to be one of those guys at the ballpark you have to shield your girlfriend from, yet funny is funny. It's baseball, you shouldn't take it that seriously. Have a dip and gain some weight. We're grown men wearing jocks out in the sun. Stay in school, Dom.
